At St Catherine’s, we believe that every child should reach his/her God-given potential.  As a consequence, we are determined that all pupils will succeed and make excellent progress in their subjects. The 2016 results continue to position the College amongst some of the highest achieving across the town, county and nationally:

  • English: 89% of pupils achieved an A*-C grade with 31% achieving A*-A grade
  • Mathematics: 72% of pupils achieved an A*-C grade with 19% achieving A*-A grade
  • Five GCSEs including English and mathematics: 66% of pupils attained at least five GCSE grades at A*-C. This result is significantly above the current (2015) national average of 56%.

Pupils also make excellent progress from the end of their primary school to the end of Year 11.  In English and mathematics, the proportion of pupils progressing at or above the expected rate is 90% and 71% respectively.  This confidently surpasses the national progress rates of 69% and 66% respectively.

Key Stage 4 examination results across the broad range of subjects, at A*-C and at A/A* grades, continue to place the School in the top 10% of schools nationally for the headline ‘Value Added Best 8 Subjects’ performance measure. On average, our pupils made more progress than similar pupils nationally.  Furthermore, St Catherine’s pupils exceed national progress expectations, regardless of their starting point: we challenge, stretch and support all pupils.

Our high performance in English, mathematics and other subjects is due to our expert and dedicated teachers, along with smaller class sizes of 21 pupils (on average). This is important to us and it is why we keep class sizes below the national average.
